LNS ABC (Anything but a Card) Challenge

Fun challenge this week for our LNS Challenge- ABC - create anything but a card is the name of the game this week!  I just got the set, Morning Cup, and thought it would work great with the mug coffee holder that I made.


It's pretty simple to make - you score a 4-1/4" x 9" piece of white cardstock at 4-1/2".  I then cut a along the edge of the top piece to form an indented edge as you can see in the picture below:


I formed the handle by inserting the 1-1/4" Square Punch into the middle of a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of white cardstock:

I embossed the front of the holder and the handle with the new (and very cool) Fancy Fan EF.  I watercolored in the coffee cups using the colors Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango and Soft Suede, and then cut them out.  They were layered over Soft Suede and Summer Starfruit using the Labels Collection and Apothecary Accents Framelits.  Here's the rest of the details:


Stamps: Morning Cup
Inks: Basic Black,  Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede
Papers: Whisper White, Summer Starfruit, Soft Suede
Accessories: Big Shot, Labels Collection and Apothecary Accents Framelits, Fancy Fan EF, 1-1/4" Square Punch, Modern Label Punch, 3/16" Corner Punch, Pumpkin Pie Brads, Blender Pen, Paper Piercing Tool,  Scissors, Dimensionals, Starbucks Coffee Packet
